Commercial Epoxy Floor
Overview of a Concrete Epoxy Flooring Project
This project, located in southern New Jersey, was a large private specialty supermarket that needed an exciting and innovative look to wow their future new client base. The customer asked for us to offer various epoxy flooring costs and designs to review, and we helped them to select the right epoxy flooring system at a budget they can afford.
Project Details for the New Commercial Epoxy Floor
This installation was in an 18,000 square foot space, and the client was wrestling with design aspects and costs. We started the decision making process by offering budgetary square foot pricing, while providing physical samples, along with videos of epoxy flooring contractor near me, as well as locations the customer would be able to travel to conveniently. Their commercial epoxy floor project was located in Middletown, NJ.
After much discussion and research, the client decided on a metallic epoxy floor system. It is a wonderfully exotic floor type, as it is an economical simulation of a marble substrate. Of course, every project has its twists, and this one was no different, as half of the footage had a wooden substrate and the balance of the floor was concrete. This was a concern, as the two materials have different expansion coefficients, making an underlayment to equalize the floor qualities for long term usage.
Challenges of an Epoxy Flooring Contractor
As an epoxy flooring contractor, we look forward to and expect various nuances to each job and that is why our years of experience of installing concrete epoxy flooring systems is so valuable. The unusual twist on this project was that the existing space was comprised of two different substrates; half concrete and half marine grade plywood.
We did instruct the client's assistant to apply two layers of 5/8" marine grade plywood. The first layer was applied north to south, and the second east to west, being careful to glue and screw thoroughly assuring no flex. Once completed, we then arrived to apply an elastomeric band aid to all seams and fill any screw holes created by the new and sound flooring material.
Finally, we overlaid the entire space, using an elastomeric membrane to create a smooth and even palette for the new commercial epoxy flooring system.
The Process to Install the Epoxy Resin Floor
Once the flexible underlayment had cured, we then went in an applied our metallic epoxy flooring system, including a previously specified aliphatic urethane coating. In 2020, we went back to visit our client and the floor still looked brand new!
